Barn Owls July 2022
Barn Owls 2022
Unfortunately, this year the barn owl box has been taken over by jackdaws. Barn owls have occupied the nest for 8 years with the jackdaws living in a separate compartment at the top. Breeding was successful in 7 of those 8 years. Despite a barn owl occupying the nest box this winter, the jackdaws made their move in the spring and they are now sitting on eggs. Hopefully the barn owls will make a comeback next year!

Barn Owls 2020
The Barn Owls stayed in the nest box throughout winter and produced a clutch of eggs this spring. Unfortunately, the camera got knocked out of position so we couldn't see the eggs or chicks very clearly. At the moment there are two healthy looking chicks in the box, who we hope to see fledging in the next few weeks. If we manage to get any decent photos, we'll post them on the news page and Twitter.
